Turn Up The Fun At Your Wedding Reception

Every bride wants her wedding reception to be fun and something people talk about for years. Here’s a few ideas that you could try to increase the fun factor.

The People In Your Lives
Recognize your guests as the important people in your lives by adding them to the reception decor. Decorate the tables in the cocktail area with framed images of you and your guests through the years. It is a great way to start conversations during the cocktail hour as the guests reminisce and socialize.

Make it a GRAND entrance
If you want your reception to be all about fun, start it off with a GRAND, grand entrance. You can stop and pose or dance your way into the room. Your wedding DJ can work with you to customize the grand entrance music so that it matches the mood you want to set. This is a great way to make a big impression and set the stage for a fun wedding.

Add a Little Something Extra
Was you first date at a comedy club? Bring in a stand-up comic for cocktail entertainment. Want to pay tribute to your heritage? Hire ethnic dancers to perform for your guests. Enjoy going to carnivals? Tarot card readers, magicians and caricature artists might be your thing.

Have Fun
If you want your guests to have fun, make sure you do! If you spend the night circling the room to visit with your guests, many will feel obligated to remain seated, waiting for their turn to visit. The best way to get your guests to the dance floor, is to lead the way! (Having a great DJ helps too!)
